I run about 1 workshop a month, with a different theme or intention. They are usually held at Hedsor, Buckinghamshire, U.K. I limit the number of places so do book early to avoid disappointment.
In October every year I organise a fund-raising workshop for Child Bereavement UK. It is always very popular. I’ll keep you posted when the date and venue have been set.
Mindful Living Retreat: Through Yoga and Wine Appreciation
5th to 8th September 2019
When we go on a retreat, we leave behind the busyness of our everyday lives and press the pause button, just for a few days, and reconnect back to who we really are. This is an invitation to spend time nourishing your body and soul by practising mindfulness – cultivating awareness through all of the senses and discovering a reverence for all aspects of our lives.
In this era of technology where one click, instagram and fast food are the norm, where we cram more activities into every day, where we multi-task like mad and still feel like we can’t get it all done, “not enough TIME” has become a common mantra. So this four-day long weekend is about:
- Time for yourself
- Time to notice
- Time to nourish
- Time for your yoga practice
- Time to appreciate being human
- Time to be in nature
- Time to breathe
- Time to connect to other souls on a deeper level
- Taking one thing at a time
We are so excited about this weekend retreat! We believe that what we have crafted is something different to the usual retreat, bringing out awareness in its myriad forms: through how we move, how we breathe, how we taste, how we notice, and how we commune with ourselves and each other.
This retreat is designed to nourish your body, mind, and soul while celebrating everything that makes us human.
The price is inclusive of:
- three nights boutique accommodation based on two people sharing a room
- brunch, supper, and afternoon snack lovingly prepared by our dedicated chef, Flora Budenberg
- all wines for mindful wine tasting, and to accompany suppersprofessional tutoring in wine appreciation by James

Fiona and James met and became friends whilst ‘studying’ and practising mindfulness at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre in 2015, and remain part of a group of friends that meet every month to ‘sit’ together (and eat cake!).
